Tyffani was recently nominated as one of the top 50 coaches in America! We sat down with her to learn more about our in-house Ace.

What makes this nomination so special?
I was nominated as one of the top 50 tennis coaches in the Nation and what makes it exciting is knowing that all my students appreciate and recognize the hard work and dedication I have put into my job over the last 7 years.

Why did you choose to work at the JCC?
First off, I love being a part of the JCC because of the clients I work and interact with on a daily basis.  Not to mention, when I found out the Swiggarts’ who have such an amazing reputation were coming, it just seemed like this was the place for me.

What is your number one goal as a coach?
I always want to make sure my students don’t get complacent and that they want to keep coming back again and again.  My students have dedicated countless hours of sweat to keep improving and they know that with me, the emphasis is not on winning, but on player development, growth, and enjoyment of the game and because we all share them same goals, that is what keeps them and me coming back each week!

What is a fun fact most people don’t know about you?
I am a fraternal twin!

Which literary character are you most like?
I am most like Jo March from Little Women. Family and friends always come first. I can be quite outspoken and I like being innovative and creative in my own way.

Which 3 words would those closest to you use to describe you?
Driven, caring and entertaining.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Italy or France. Food, Sports and fun!

Please stop by the Tennis Center and be sure to congratulate Tyffani on this outstanding nomination!
